Cartifact, a business mapping company, has launched a heat map of the homeless for downtown LA. The map can be used to track the shifts in the homeless population. I'm sure they've thought of a legitimate purpose (perhaps awareness)... But there's something a little big-brother about this one.
Implications - At the end of the day, however, this Downtown Los Angeles Homeless Map is still a pretty impressive technological achievement. It's impressive to see how the minds behind it have managed to chart such a vulnerable population amidst an area as densely populated as downtown Los Angeles. It does beg the question, however, about who else they can track so easily. Creepy!
